These swords are made in the style of 7th century Jian double edged straight swords. Produced by the People's Liberation Army specifically for use by its officers and issued in the Sino-American War, many were captured and came to the American home front as souvenirs – some even found their way into fifth columnist hands. Since the Great War, these weapons have become an uncommonly used by wastelanders and raiders alike.
Despite their touted quality, Chinese officer swords are surprisingly inadequate at what they do: They are comparable to ancient revolutionary swords, and even switchblades or combat knives are a viable alternative. Still, the swords can be modified to include a serrated or electrified blade (or both), which greatly improve their damage. Other bladed weapons lack these combined options, forcing to choose between improved damage or electric/stunning attacks.
Targets bleed. Exceptional damage.
